If you have been around the metal scene for awhile it is pretty easy to see when a record company throws out a release that is obviously just a money grab. It is a little more difficult to say that about a individual artist since the best way to really make a career in the metal scene right now is to be in multiple bands (ask Gus G). The reason I bring this up in this review is I really get the feeling that the fans are getting fleeced on this one.
This album is really symphonic…I mean REALLY symphonic…to the point where even other members of Rhapsody would say "Damn…now that album is symphonic." This is really stretching the boundaries of what is and what isn't metal. Not only is this album a lot lighter than I would have expected but that isn't what sucks about it (although that sure as hell didn't help it either). What really drags down the score on this album is it will just bore the fuck out of you. I can appreciate what the man is trying to do here and create something that is larger in scope than just another metal release but oddly enough that is actually what I like…metal…go figure.
So is this a complete waste of time? Well that would really depend on the listener. If you like tons of symphonic elements with songs that have a wide open feel that will remind you of an opera then you will probably shit yourself when listening to this album…hell I thought I smelled something funny. For me I prefer A LOT more metal in my symphony.
